, steve king lost some base support. democrats would love to pick up this seat. guest: i'm sure they would love to pick up the seat. the problem is they've already thrown in the towel. the rest of the democratic super pacs given up the seats. i'm glad they wasted money on this seat. steve king will win overwhelmingly. getting back to the budget. let's focus on the fact that barack obama budget was put in the house and senate and it got zero vote. that's a stilling argument. he's gotting zero votes, none in the house and none in the senate. listen, when you're negotiating, it's hard to negotiate with yourself. the democrats never figured out a way to get their whole coalition of democrats around everything. we look forward to negotiating with them and look forward to increasing job growth. host: robby mook, have democrats given up on vilsack? guest: that's untrue. we invested tremendous amount of money in the district. the real story here is this race is in play at all in the first place. the reason that it's in play, before there was a tea party steve king, was the tea party.
of using the bankruptcy to avoid paying taxes. steve centanni's live in washington with more on this. steve, what exactly is the irs saying about solyndra now? >> reporter: well, jenna, they're suggesting the bankruptcy plan for solyndra's really an elaborate scheme to avoid paying hundreds of millions in federal taxes. solyndra, as you know, failed after getting that huge government loan and filed for bankruptcy last year. irs lawyers filed a document in federal court opposing a bankruptcy settlement claiming the plan would result in net operating losses that could be used to offset future taxable income. the irs saying that plan would, would create a holding company -- it would have no employees and no business operations, but it would enjoy up to $350 million in those tax breaks that solyndra's investors could use. and one of those investors is argonaut ventures, linked to billionaire george kaiser, a prominent democratic fundraiser. jenna? jenna: we'll watch for the next chapter in that, steve. there's apparently another solar company in the news today? is. >> reporter: right. yes, this
in light of what was the last week in denver? >> steve, i think he touched on the biggest reason why this debate could be more important than these under cards typically are. that is because there is pressure on joe biden to stand and deliver, and to change the narrative from what we've had the last few days. which is a fact given president obama's weak performance in denver, that mitt romney for the first time it seemed a real bump in the polls, and in some states is polling narrowly ahead. so i think biden will try to turn that around, put paul ryan and the gop ticket back on the defensive and at the same time the burden is on trying to keep the mojo going, keep romney's sort of balance here a life released a few more days until the president and mitt romney face off again next week. so i think that's the biggest reason why this thing matters. also one important point and that is this is one of the first perhaps the only campaign where one side is really campaigning against the policies of the other parties vice president as much as they're running against the other party's preside
, samson on our democrat line. are you with us? let's move on to steve in shreveport, louisiana, on our independent line. caller: good morning. host: hold on a second, we are going back to steve. caller: i do have a personal experience in my own family. my father was very wealthy and i come from a very wealthy family. my mother really did not care about anything. the only people she wanted to hang around with or rich ladies. we had remade in our house and she did not do anything. she did not cook for us or anything. i was very disgusted with my own mother. from what i see of ann romney, the only thing she cares about is looking good and trying to look like she's 35 years old, caring about makeup and clothing. she was a cancer survivor, but she's not the only one. a lot of people are suffering from cancer. when mitt romney was putting his money overseas and exporting jobs overseas, she knew the whole thing. she should have said you should not do that. and it is against mormon religion to invest in a casino and things like that. it's against their religion. but she knew about it and let m
